Might want to mount the Giant Loop under the skid plate for extra flotation...Is that a Coyote or Great Basin?

Food Tip

My wife and I were out last night on Rt. 3 in Liberty. Hunger set in about the time we rolled up on Lori's Cafe.

It's a must do if you find yourself in the area.

I haven't had a meal out like that in quite some time. Excellent cook!

I asked them if they would send up a balloon the next time she felt like cooking ribs. I was told by my wife that the haddock sandwich was second to none.


Oh, small place, maybe seats 20.

GNBMW riders have used Lori's as our last breakfast spot of the year for last 2 yrs....
The pancakes cover the entire plate so I just order 2 and have enough to take home for 2 more breakfasts....

how late are they open?

we ate at the Seafood Gallery in downtown Carmel last night, fresh oil, the onion rings were very good...
taking the long way home on the Suzi, Mrs BK says "stop by the grave" she wanted to ckeck on the flowers, but what a stab in the heart to ride his bike to his grave...I suppose it would be worse if we couldn't ride the bike...

I believe I saw 8 pm.

Beautiful night to be out and about last night. Looks like another tonight.

Perhaps I'll take the old Kaw out for a hoon around the block, or two.

We'll have breakfast ready for ya Dave. Last time you came up we could hear that beautiful exhaust note of the Suzi when you got back onto I-95 in Houlton. No kidding. Has to be almost 2 miles as the crow flies.

slipped the clutch on the KLR last week while getting on the I and later on a steep hill leaving Hermon on Rt2 in 5th gear so I ordered friction disks, springs already in stockpile...
after 43k friction disks are less then half worn to min. spec but since the new disks will be here Monday and springs are in hand we'll put the fresh stuff in and save the worn stuff....in the "I might need this" pile...

It's all that added power

How is it running other than the clutch?

very nicely, got to compare it to 2 other stock KLRs on an evening ride and all agreed there is a noticeable difference in the way it pulls when given the throttle
getting about 58mpg and the oil level stays where it should which is the real treat...

Aroostook RIP 2013

Howdy all!

Spring is here and folks' weekend schedules will start filling up fast. Just getting this out there in the interest of early planning.

This year the 7th annual Aroostook RIP will take place from Friday July 5 through Sunday July 7 at Maine DR's and Ms. Maine DR's place in Houlton.

Hope to see all the regulars and maybe some new faces. Please RSVP if you can so we have some idea of the number of riders and campers coming.

When:

Friday July 5 through Sunday July 7. Rides are day-long on Saturday and Sunday. Folks are welcome to arrive anytime Friday afternoon.

Where:

Marc and Amy’s place in rural Houlton. Acommodations are at our back-40 camping site with lots of room for tents, hammocks, and campers. There is no running water at the campsite, but the house and the garden hose are just a short distance away. The site is bordered by beautiful “B” Stream, a good place for a dip or bath. Some decent trout fishing too.

Directions:

From Canada…
Take I-95 to Houlton. After passing through the border, continue on I-95 approximately 2.5 miles (4.5 km) to exit 302 for Houlton. After exiting, bear right onto US Rt. 1 north…

If coming from the south…
Take I-95 to Houlton exit. After exiting, bear left onto US Rt. 1 north…

Once on US Rt. 1 north, immediately get to your far left lane, as you will be turning left at the first traffic light. At this light, you will see big signs for Walmart and Shop-n-save. It looks like an entrance to Walmart, but it is Ludlow Road.

Staying in the far left lane, turn left onto Ludlow Road and continue on this road past Walmart and Shop-n-Save that will be on your right. Proceed on this road approx. 1 mile (1.6 km) to the first paved road on the right (McSheffery Road). Turn right onto McSheffery and proceed approx. 1 mile (1.6 km) to the field entrance on the left before the intersection with B Road. Look for signs.

Rides:

Saturday ride will be mostly 2-track ATV trails. Knobby tires are a must. Leave your bike luggage at the campsite. Expect sections of rocks, roots, puddles, some mud, and a challenging bridge or two. Y’know…all the good stuff.

Sunday ride will be more relaxed, sticking mostly to the ATV rail-trail and old logging roads with a little gravel pit stop for fun..

For anyone riding up on a big-bike, many options for a rural pave and dirt road ride are available.

Bike should be street legal for both days.

Meals:

Bring what ya want for the barbecue, but Amy and I will have burgers and dogs and such available for Friday evening. There is a Hannaford Foodliner and a Walmart just down the road from our place.

Breakfast Saturday will be at the Irving Big Stop restaurant, or Tim Hortens…all just a short distance from our house and on the trail route.

For Saturday evening supper we will have chili, s'ghetti, stew, or something similar. Also, a fiddlehead casserole or quiche. The barbecue is available too.

Sunday breakfast will be Amy’s famous Country Brunch…sausage and egg casserole (fantastic)…at the campsite. Fresh eggs donated by our own laying hens.

Drinks:

BYOB…nuff said.

Just post here if you need more info.
